Drugs and violence can devastate a community and we have more than our share in Billings. At every legislative session there is a long list of bills attempting to do something about these problems. Last session we passed a bill to make it harder for drug dealers to make meth. Yet the problem persists. The cost to the taxpayers for rehabilitation and prisons is huge.
We can take our community back from this scourge by a grass-roots effort, one family at a time. Families are being destroyed and lives are being lost.
Will you help? Join me and other concerned community partners in the ninth annual March Against Drugs and Violence June 10, starting on the Yellowstone County Courthouse lawn at noon. After a short march around downtown, we return back to the courthouse lawn where we will have a free barbecue, refreshments and door prizes. All are welcome to join the march and the festivities. For entertainment, there will be a special performance by Dan Page and the Barn Cats. Information will be available on various ways you can help to stop the problems caused by drugs and violence.
This is a perfect event for youth groups, church groups, senior groups and concerned citizens. Bring your organization banner to carry in the march. Over 250 people participated in last year's march.
Join in the fun and learn what you can do to help our community reduce the devastating effects of drugs and violence in Billings. Call me at 252-5554 or Mike at 254-2445 if you need more information.
